Columbus AC Tips: Keep Your Home Cool and Save Energy
As the season of hot days and long evenings draws near, it is normal for questions to arise on how to keep your home cool and save energy. There are some things that are easy to do, and can help keep your house cool without overusing your Columbus air conditioner.
Install a house fan to cool the entire home at once, (as well as cooling the attic above)
Eliminate Internal Heat Sources
Lessen stove and oven use during hot days and enjoy a backyard barbeque or cookout, keeping the heat out of the kitchen and in the great outdoors. When cooking inside do so in the evening and employ the use of the microwave, toaster-oven or counter-top grill, which produces far less heat than the stove or oven.
Switch to newer, compact fluorescent lights, which use less energy and produce far less heat than incandescent lights
Pass on the hot-drying cycle of the dishwasher and let dishes air dry, or dry them by hand
Line-dry clothes rather than using the dryer, or use the lowest heat setting on the dryer
Take shorter showers that are cooler, and turn on exhaust fans and open windows to properly ventilate the area, allowing excess heat to escape
Turn computers and other electronics off when not in use, and use electronic devices such as TV’s less often throughout the day
Combining these various home fixes, while eliminating internal heat sources, can be some of the best ways to keep your home cool and save energy during hot summer months. Just try some and see how that energy bill decreases!
